While delivering a presentation at the forum, Al Hasani stressed the significance of the existing and potential investment opportunities in the Gulf countries in general and the Sultanate in particular in various fields. Commenting on Oman-China economic activities, Al Hasani said, “Chinese companies have a significant presence in various activities in Oman. Of course, Oman Wanfang’s industrial town project at Duqm is the latest interesting news.”
Al Hasani also presented an overview of the nature of investment opportunities in the Sultanate, the advantages and facilities that are accessible by the local and foreign investors, in addition to the Sultanate’s excellent geographical location at the entrance to the Gulf in the middle of the East-West trade routes.
